Homo sapiens by Born. Coder by Heart. Entrepreneur by Passion.

In search of happiness…

Hi, I am Muhammad Sumon Molla Selim (mostly known as Sumon Selim) from Dhaka, Bangladesh. I’m a coder by <3.  Love to write codes mostly using PHP and Laravel. I will talk more about this later. But let’s move on to something else – myself, my life.

I was going through much hardship in last few years – mostly mentally. But now I have decided to move on. I’m sacrificing all my dream and hope. Instead I will live from now only to fulfill my responsibilities – responsibility towards my family, responsibility towards humanity!

I’ll write regularly from now to tell stories about my Life, Thoughts, Experience and my Coding journey.

While I start my journey, here are some lines I would love to mention:

In my search for freedom
And peace of mind
I’ve left the memories behind
Want to start a new life
But it seems to be rather absurd
When I know the truth
Is that I always think of you…

Fixing Date and Time Visibility Problem on elementary OS Freya Beta

I am a hardcore elementary OS lover and was using Luna for a long time. But couldn’t wait more for the new version of elementary OS Freya and decided to move onto it. So installed Freya Beta 1 64 bit on my HP ProBook 4420s as my primary OS replacing Luna 32 bit.

The Problem: But I found that time and date is missing on the top bar (wingpanel).

After googling, I found out that the solution is to add a single line of information on the /etc/environment file.

I’m a terminal lover. So, I typed the following command on the terminal to edit the file. Remeber, you will need administration access to edit the file.

And the result was:
Editing the /etc/environment fileAll I need to do was to add the following line on it and save it.

You can set your locale (e.g. bn_BD.UTF-8) too as a value.

After a restart the problem was fixed and date and time was visible on the wingpanel.

This command will open the /etc/ folder on the Files browser and then you can edit the environment file using your default text editor.

If gksu is not installed, you can install it by using the following command:

Basically gksu is a graphical front-end for sudo that allows graphical command to be run without the need to run an X terminal emulator and using su directly. It’s effectively just a GTK+ skin for the superuser commands.
